La Vita For Sale


La Vita Dos

welcome to our La Vita Website. We are captains Rick and Lynn Bradshaw. Tigger, our 20 pound cat was responsible for chasing the birds away.

We live on La Vita, our 1987 Hans Christian 33T cutter-rigged sailboat. We bought La Vita in 2006 and sold our house a few months later. We all moved on board and lived in Chula Vista Marina (south of San Diego, CA) for the next five and a half months while we upgraded La Vita�s systems. It took nearly three years to prepare La Vita and ourselves for cruising.

Our first real sail, due to operational restrictions required by the state of California, was to Ensenada, Mexico in October 2006. Our long-term plan is to spend the next several years exploring the world beginning in Mexico.

In time we plan to transit the Panama Canal. After that, our next big goal is to sail across the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. We hope to spread a little bit of sunshine where ever we go.

We plan to post updates to our blog describing our adventures along with photos on this Web site. Please feel free to comment and let us know what's going on in your world.
